From here on, we assume,“ he said in his first major campaign appearance at the evening Service in Tel Aviv, statesman-like as rarely in a suit and tie. "On 9. April, I'm going to form a national government. A strong government. A government that acts responsibly and vigorously.“ So, it's official: Gantz, founded in December, the party of "resistance to Israel", encounter serious ambitions, Netanyahu from the throne and become head of government. Also on the Team: Moshe "Bogie" Yaalon, also a former chief of the General staff, and by 2016, defense Minister under Netanyahu. He, too, had Recently established his own party.
Two generals could be dangerous
Benny and the Bogie against Bibi: two Ex-generals against the "Mr. Security" for Netanyahu, the staged itself as Israel's security guarantor and an indictment for corruption, could be the two now dangerous. Prior to the merger, the surveys Gantz’ party saw as the second strongest force behind Netanyahu's Likud party. Now the Prime gets competitive with security expertise in a double pack.
In Israel, a country surrounded by hostile States, and in the army service for men and women is compulsory, military careers, a key plus point for many voters.

He also appealed directly to the Iranian President Hassan Ruhani and threatened to thwart its plans in the North, the South and elsewhere in the Middle East.
The election campaign videos are warlike
That Gantz wants to score in his role as a former army chief, occupied his first election campaign videos, which he published some days ago: one Of these pictures in shades of grey, from the bombed-out city parts in Gaza in 2014, shortly after the Gaza war, the army led under Gantz’ command. Blow by blow, I have used it in the corners of the Hamas once said in the displayed Text, and: "6231 targets destroyed, 1304 terrorists murdered three and a half years of peace". Gantz brags so with military Successes, but it is clear that, "Under my leadership, the government will strive for peace and no Chance to skip, a regional change."
